Well, I don't know if they count as 'weird' but my triggers include;

- people playing with their hands - tapping them on the table or in any other way.
- being alone anywhere for a long period of time (4+ hours).
- sleeping on my back - which I don't do often, but I sometimes happen to lie that way for a minute and... yeah.

Don't know what triggers are exactly... actually...

But I think this one is a trigger, and a really weird one...

Shrek 2... Dinner scene... Shrek and the chicken! I felt physically sick and very tired and very tense!

I can watch r*pe scenes in movies without it bothering me too much...
I can to some extend read about it without it bothering me too much...

And then I have a problem with Shrek...?!

Sudden Noises
Loud Noices
Being approached from behind
Anytime more than one man is present
the smell of Coconut
The smell of wheat germ oil and honey shampoo
Black light posters
Someone too close to my face and speaking really loudly is a major trigger for me...they are lucky to get one warning before i strike.
certain Pink Floyd songs
tree lined roads in the summer
hiking boots
guys with dark hair

k, thats enough methinks,

I used to have triggers

Elvis presely songs
Men who look like my perps
Certain names
any photos of women/girls in underwear
People who talk about the porn industry as if there's nothing wrong with it.
men who touch me without permission
Sex toys

Actually one thing really gets up my nose is catalogues where they have young girls wearing makeup. I hate it with a passion. That's about the only hang up I have these days.
